Find cottages in WatchetVisit Watchet

Lying at the mouth of the Washford River is the coastal town of Watchet, with its busy marina, an old port and charming houses and shops. Close by explore the Somerset coast on lovely coastal walks, enjoy day trips into Exmoor National Park or simply stroll along the Esplanade in town and watch the world go by.

In and around town there are two local museums, shops and cafes and fossil hunting hotspots on the beach. And after all the exploring and sightseeing, you can sit back and enjoy a glass of Somerset cider or locally made ice cream.

Esteemed English poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge wrote 'The Rime of the Ancient Mariner' as he travelled through the area and you can follow in his footsteps and perhaps find your own inspiration by walking some of The Coleridge Way. The Coleridge Way is a 36 mile walk through the lovely Somerset countryside and Exmoor. From Nether Stowey, Coleridge's home (to the east of Watchet), you can wander through changing landscapes and historic villages with breathtaking views over to the North Somerset Coast and Wales.

If travelling with your feet up is more your style then The West Somerset Railway may be for you. With twenty miles of well-preserved steam railway, the line passes through miles of stunning countryside from Bishops Lydeard, passing through Watchet and ending at Minehead.

Watchet has a lot to offer; for accommodation please search for holiday cottages in Watchet.
